    Unhappy Help! - web pages not updating.

    Hi there, I have a major problem with a website I've been employed to create. The job is almost finished and as I work I've been uploading updated material. The problem is that the new material isn't showing up when I try to view the site remotely. So an updated 'index' page isn't being seen, the old one is. It's driving me nuts. From what I've found out so far I think it maybe an ISP caching problem. If this is the problem is there some way of making sure that when something is uploaded it can be viewed immediately. Help with this would be greatly appreciated as my deadline is approaching fast and I want to be sure what I see is what my client sees. I'm using Dreamweaver and I'm fairly inexperienced creating web pages.

    Thanks,

    Regards, Ken

    It's possible that it is a problem with your browsers caching. Try either clearing your cache, or viewing the site in a different broswers.

    I agree with pyro, chances are you need to clear your browser cache.

    Though once I kept uploading the file into the wrong folder over and over going nuts why I don't see the updated page. There are days when you can be just so burnt when you don't see the obvious answer.
    Absence of a result is a result, unless defined otherwise.

    No, I'm afraid the browser cache isn't the problem, that was one of the first things I tried. It's not the host either, it was the host that suggested I must be using a bad ISP, one that uses caching. My index page loaded perfectly just five minutes ago. How do you create a web page that doesn't get stuck in these big network caches, I think that's what I need to know.

    If it is a problem with your ISP's caching, you are going to need to talk to them. Not much you can do, if it's not your box, and not the server...

    as a last resort you can try puuting this code in your web pages head section

    <meta http_equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache"/>

    It could well be your server. Take a look at your page's HTTP Response header (http://www.delorie.com/web/headers.html). You want to see an 'Expires' field.
